A three-year collaborative capacity building initiative, the Enhancing Maternal and Child Health Services (EMCH) Programme successfully resulted in nearly 180 Indian healthcare professionals across the Southern Indian state of Karnataka trained. In the process of upskilling these healthcare professionals, at least 100,000 pregnant mothers and newborns have benefited from better quality healthcare services. The EMCH Programme was a three-year specialist programme implemented by the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) in partnership with SingHealth and the State Institute of Health and Family Welfare (SIHFW), Government of Karnataka. The EMCH Programme was designed to help augment the government’s efforts to tackle preventable causes of both infant and maternal deaths, with the aim of reducing infant deaths and ensuring safer pregnancies for more women.
